WAUKESHA -- Grace Lomen scored 21 points and grabbed 15 rebounds as host Waukesha Catholic Memorial snapped the Lake Mills girls basketball team's nine-game win streak dating back to last season with a 67-62 nonconference win on Tuesday.

Lake Mills (2-1) trailed 10-2 at the get-go and were down 12 in the second half before pulling within four points late. The L-Cats committed 23 turnovers, surrendered 14 offensive boards and went 13-for-25 at the free throw line.

"Proud of the way we fought back," Lake Mills girls basketball coach Brandon Siska said. "Our youth showed tonight. This is a good learning experience for us. We have a lot of potential, but also have a lot to improve on."

Junior center Bella Pitta scored a career-high 27 points and sophomore point guard Emily Wollin tallied a career-best 21, scoring 17 points in the second period for the L-Cats, who hit just one three-pointer.

Jenna Welsch added 20 points and Olivia Conway contributed 13 for the Crusaders (1-1).

The L-Cats travel to face Marshall on Saturday in a rematch of last season's sectional final won by Lake Mills in double overtime.
